Gujarati name(s) of Ziziphus oenopolia : 3 posts by 2 authors.
“Eramdi” does appear as a vernacular name of “Zizyphus oenoplia“ in the Flora of Gujarat State (vol. 1, 1978) by GL Shah. This word is spelt as એરમડી in the Bruhad Gujarati Kosh (Comprehensive Gujarati Dictionary, part 1, 1976) by Prof. Keshavram K. Shastree [sic], quite distinct from એરંડો / એરંડ of Ricinus communis. I don’t know what exactly એરમડી denotes in the context of Z. oenopolia. This species is often known as બોરડીનો વેલો.

Now while I am re-compiling common names of Ziziphus oenoplia after some gap of years, to my surprise, the epithet has got “corrected” to oenopolia. The genus name itself has its own records of spelling variances, and there are some posts in our database that discussed it.
Spelling variances are confusing, obscure etymology makes it difficult. Please help in knowing what would oenoplia OR oenopolia mean.
oinos = wine OR vine ? and pleion = more, many OR plia = spine ?
